Welcome to St. Alexis Roman Catholic Church

To Know, Love & Serve!


 

The St. Alexis family is a community blessed by God with a diversity of cultures and languages. Celebrating that richness, we reach out to all inviting them to gather at the table of the Lord as one People. In openness to the Gospel, we form ourselves as stewards of the Lord's gifts to create a community of faith that is unifying, supporting and nurturing.

Real Questions from Bensenville
Preguntales Reales desde Bensenville

¿Si Jesús era judío, porque somos “cristianos” y no “judíos”?
Es cierto que Jesús es judío. Ser judío es ser parte del pueblo con quien dios hizo una alianza perpetua hace miles de años con Abraham. Parte de esta alianza era que un día, vendría un mesías para salvar a su pueblo. Los que creen que Jesús es este mesías prometido, se llaman “cristianos”. Los que se llaman “judíos” no creen que Jesús es el mesías prometido, y por esto están esperando todavía el cumplimiento de la alianza de dios con su pueblo.  Como vemos, hay una gran relación entre los cristianos y los judíos. De hecho, Jesús nos da la mejor enseñanza sobre su relación con el judaísmo, “no he venido a abolir la ley judía, sino a darle cumplimiento” (Mateo 5:17)
If Jesus was Jewish, why do we call ourselves “Christians”
Yes, Jesus was definitely Jewish. To be a Jew means that you are part of the people that God made an everlasting covenant through Abraham. Part of this covenant was that one day a messiah would come from this people. Those that believe Jesus is this Messiah are called “Christians”. Jews that don’t believe that Jesus is the promised Jewish messiah still call themselves “Jews”. They are still waiting for the fulfillment of God’s promise of the messiah. For us Christians, Jesus himself gives the best teaching about his relationship to Judaism, “I have not come to abolish the [Jewish] law and prophets, but rather bring them to completion.” (Matthew 5:17)

Morning Offering Prayer

Start the day with God!

"Even on the cross He did not hide Himself from sight; rather, He made all creation witness to the presence of its Maker. Then, having once let it be seen that it was truly dead, He did not allow that temple of His body to linger long, but forthwith on the third day raised it up, impassible and incorruptible, the pledge and token of His victory. "
— St. Athanasius of Alexandria
